Why combining cheese with jam or marmalade? It’s all about chemistry: cheese is almost completely sugar-free, so its complementary food are jams and marmalades. The result is a balanced mouthfeel. In order to pick the best combination, one must consider the type of milk that was used for the cheese – cow, goat or sheep – and the consistency – soft, semi-hard, cured or semi-cured.
When it comes to taste, a proper balance is the ultimate goal. Softer and sweeter cheese should be combined with sour marmalades and jams while strong and cured cheese should be combined with something sweet.
